I know, it’s getting old, me saying ‘it’s been a while”…but there you have it.
Anyways, I finally decided to continue my rewatch and hopefully I will now manage to get through the show, up until the very end.Continue reading
Three today! I tried to get through Season 1, but one is still missing… ah well, leave something for tomorrow ^^Continue reading
Lacey. Oh how have we been waiting for that episode. The Rumbelle ep. The one that would finally reunite Rumple and Belle… not quite. More like Lacey, Belle’s SB persona, and Rumple. Or Gold. Or…
For me this episode didn’t get a good start at all. And I’m not talking about the ep’s beginning itself; I’m talking about what happened before it. As mentioned countless times, I like spoilers. I read, watch, whatever them. And even though I try to not get every spoiler of ONCE, there’s still a lot I know beforehand. Now, spoilers are fine because usually they are made clever enough to only tease, often make waiting worse, and especially still keep the tension.
ABC, however, doesn’t seem to be able to do that. Before 2×16, they spoilt and teased A LOT. Including giving away the big “secret” of who’s gonna die. And yes, I think that was a secret because it could have worked; it could have left people on edge. But even for those who don’t read spoilers or don’t look at the countless set pictures from upcoming episodes’ shootings there wasn’t much of a secret left when ABC posted a picture with Rumple and Cora that said “One will die”. This was beyond stupid. Everyone knows that Rumple isn’t going to die; not permanently though, because let’s face it, he’s the most important character of this show, besides Emma maybe. Without Rumple OUAT wouldn’t work, period.
In the wake of the Paleyfest and some great revelations, “The Queen Is Dead” was almost unspectacular in comparison. For about the first 32 minutes.
Manhattan is the episode everyone has been waiting for. Must be. Because it promised to finally reveal who Bae is in our world, and oh, how many speculations were out there about that? In the end, they proved to hold up; and yet was it exciting and surprising.
There are a few things about Rumple that confuse me.
